PINE BLUFF, Ark. — A deceased man's mother has filed a federal lawsuit against Jefferson County claiming a sheriff's deputy shocked her son with a Taser while he was in a large pond, incapacitating him and causing him to drown.

Brett Howie, 36, was wanted on two felony warrants accusing him of missing court dates in 2005 on charges of possession, delivery and manufacturing of a controlled substance. He drowned on Feb. 19, 2007, after fleeing Jefferson County deputies and jumping into a pond at 5517 Ryburn Road outside Pine Bluff.
